The man who was caught on video stealing a teen’s “Make America Great Again” hat and throwing a drink in his face inside a Whataburger restaurant will face justice in Texas.
San Antonio Police found and arrested 30-year-old Kino Jimenez on Thursday.
“Kino Jimenez was located in Universal City, Texas. Universal City police officers took Mr. Jimenez into custody without incident,” police said in a statement.
Jimenez was arrested on a warrant for “theft of person,” a felony charge in Texas, and was booked in jail on a $5,000 bond. He looks a lot less tough in his mug shot than he did when he was bullying a teenager.

The arrest comes days after Jimenez was fired from his part-time job at the Rumble bar in San Antonio.
It also appears that Jimenez has been arrested at least one time before as KSAT-TV published a different mug shot.
The nation reacted in outrage after a video showed Jimenez ripping 16-year-old Hunter Richard’s MAGA hat off his head and assaulting him amid a flurry of expletives.
“You ain’t supporting s**t!” Jimenez says in the video. “This is going to go great in my f***ing fireplace, b***h.”
Watch the full video below:
Richard’s attempts to have a rational conversation with his attacker were unsuccessful.
"I support my President and, if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” he said. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”
Since then, Donald Trump Jr. asked for help getting Richard’s information so he can send him a brand new MAGA hat — signed by the president of the United States.
“If someone can get me this young man’s information I’ll get him a new #maga hat... SIGNED by #potus," he tweeted.
It just goes to show, good always wins in the end.
